February FO: Azzu’s Shawl

by Ver贸nica

While I didn’t write out any knitting goals for the year, I knew that I should put my ever-growing stash to good use (besides just being beautiful to look at and soft to the touch).

I decided to use this hand spun that I bought at a crafts fair. The combination of Bluefaced Leicester and silk (80/20) felt luscious in my hands.

There were 490 yards of it to play with and the color changes were lovely to look at as they unfolded.

The size is just right to use as a scarf, a shoulder wrap, or to keep Bear warm on chilly nights.
